Diet

Aims

To increase knowledge about the correct type of diet a sports performer should have. This includes the need for a balanced diet, the essential nutrients which make up a balanced diet and the special dietary needs which different sports performers need to take part in their specific activities. The requirements before, during and after activity should also be considered.
